This place does everything with smoke, no rubs or sauces, just pure smoked meat done absolutely perfect. There is always a line out the door, but it moves fast. It's an order by the pound place and beware of ordering too much! I've done that almost every time and ended up with enough food for a small army. My favorite... More

I have been to this location multiple times and they are always consistent which is a major plus. All foods are a la carte so the cost could add up quickly. The meat is BY THE POUND. Know this and as mentioned in other reviews - think about what you want and cut that in half. You will get a... More

Smoked on wood and just incredible food. You walk up to the pit and you see all of these amazing options which you order by the pound. Don't let your eyes are bigger than your stomach get you because it will. Okay so my favorites are the brisket which I ask to be chopped and the sausage. Their roasted corn... More

Been to several of the Hard eight locations. Food is consistent. The Brisket a little too lean but that is common almost every where these days. As to ordering, think about what you want and then cut in half, otherwise you will get a lot more meat on your plate than you really want.

I love this place but I've noticed the beans are getting spicier and spicier. The beans are complementary with your meal, I am wondering if they are making them too spicy for anyone to want any?!? The meat and the environment are still excellent.

I wasn't too happy about the distance from my hotel, but the food made up for it. What the restaurant lacked in decorum, the bbq made me not even care. I hadn't had bbq that good in quite a while. A little pricey if you get a lot of meat since they charge by the lb. But worth it. I... More

My colleagues in Dallas thought it would be a fun evening for a few of us to eat at Hard 8. After a three hour flight I was more than happy to avoid dinner at the hotel. It was a quick drive from the Westin, we arrived to a crowded parking lot on a Tuesday evening. As the four of... More

On my first visit I wasn't really ready for the serving line. I was intimidated by the "order by meat weight" on the way through the line. Now I'm a pro at it haha. Some tips: you can always tell them a little more or a little less if you're like me and not so sure what a 1/4 lb... More

Most people I know that love this place are not from here. The BBQ is good but comes with a hefty price. Lunch could easily cost $15 or more if you don't portion control. Don't let your eyes get bigger than your stomach with all the options.
